- However, the veiled shade managed to ignite an inferno of rage that been brewing over his comments
Burna Boy has thanked Economic Freedom Fighter leader Julius Malema for sticking his neck out and supporting his trip to South Africa.
Briefly.co.za reported that Malema had not made many friends when he responded to criticism by referring to haters as 'bedwetting cowards'.
The musician seemed grateful, responding to the social media post with a hint at meeting up with the EFF boss:
"Thank you Julius Malema. Africa must Unite and I am willing to Die for that cause just like you brother. I look forward to meeting you."
While people dished out their fair share of shade, both in defense against and in support of Burna Boy, the next post escalated the situation to a new level:
"Let’s not act like xenophobia is not real in South Africa, let’s not act like Nigerians, Tanzanians, Zimbabweans, and many other AFRICANS have not been victims in the last three years. Please let us all do our part to Unite Africa."
The result was Nigerians trending as people responded to the claim that South Africans were at fault.
Take a look at what citizens had to say in response to the shade below:
